I ran it on Mint 20.2 with snap GZDoom. The modest HUD never shows, nor any HUD for that matter. I followed suggestions for different settings until I was exhausted. Also, I think I am supposed to get a shotgun somewhere in the first map since I keep collecting shells (shotgun not sea shells). I tried to turn fog off but it's still there. When I ran it from the command line alone and not in the launcher (which also uses the command line) this is what I got for messages as it was loading (Note to the editors, if this is too long use ellipses and leave what you think is important.): anthony@anthony-HP-Compaq-6200-Pro-SFF-PC:~$ gzdoom -iwad doom2.wad -file "Mystery Of Tyskie Islands.pk3" models.pk3

Hey. Author here. On a new account, but still. I must admit, MOTI's coding was literally built on ducttape; back then I was not very good at coding and cobbled-together bad ACS that didn't work on new versions of GzDoom; not to mention some files of MOTI were literally corrupted due to a XWE bug (?), and some leves literally were unfinished. While MOTI got very positive reviews, with it being praised for the jungle graphics and it's mood and story, after all the time that pased, I think MOTI is not a very good mod. It's unpolished, rough, with chaotic designs (some of the open jungle areas look like Terry maps on an automap ngl), bad scripting, and a uneven aesthetic (the mixed 64x64 & 128x128 enemy sprites are especially jarring).

I recommend you take a look at my new mod, Reds Over World, which will premiere in 2024. It's gonna be huge.

I was very impressed with some of the graphics in MOTI. I definitely will be looking for Reds Over World. Thank you for the effort you did put into MOTI. To me the spirit behind TCs like yours is what I look for in mods. In fact, even though flawed, yours is in my very picky collection of TCs.

I just passed this TC yesterday and wrote an opinion about it (In Russian: https://doomguy.ru/community/topic/myst ... a-massera/).

Well, for the First Job, the Project is quite interesting (Especially in The Visual Part). But the lack of Guns and Minor Bugs can spoil the impression. However, I wouldn't call it a "Not Very Good Mod"! Yes, it has some problems, but it is quite interesting. So I'm happy with the passage! :wink:

And I will definitely appreciate "Reds Over World" when it is fully polished! :)
